If so the pipe needs repositioning or extending away from the gearbox also the oil will need changing asap.

Hi all, thanks for the replies. Not had a chance to reply, but i drained the box and it was full of water! Got some oil, but where on earth is the filler plug ??
Or is the plug where the water is getting in ?
The bulkhead drain tube is loose and it must have been dumping water stright on top of the switch on the top of the g box. I reckon cable ties will be enough to pull it back to over the right rear of the box.
